Blog Tour: Racing for Time

Hello, my fine friends and writers. Today I am part of a blog tour for Olivia Nickerson's new book, Racing for Time!

About the book:

After a frightening car crash that lands Janefer and her best friend Melanie in the hospital, Janefer is set on bringing the culprit to justice. When Melanie is found to be missing, Janefer is even more determined to discover the person behind it all.

Through a maze of lies and deceit, spiritual questions arise, leaving her confused and troubled. As Janefer races to gather clues leading to Melanie, she gradually learns to trust God with her life, no matter what the outcome.

Can Janefer find out the truth before Melanie is hurt--or worse?

Time is ticking.

My review: Four stars

I LOVE crime shows and mystery novels. If you are anything like me, then this book will be a treat for you.

First and foremost, I found myself really connecting with the protagonist Janefer. While I am a Christian, as I have recently wound up in the hospital two times in less than a month, I also have found myself questioning the goodness of God much like the main character.

Plus, like Janefer, I also have a parent with cancer, so the ending was a real heart breaker for me.

I also have to take a step back here and applaud her best friend Mel for having the courage she did when faced with a seemingly hopeless situation. I can only hope that I can be as strong as she was whenever I am faced with daunting odds.

The only problem I had with this book was that I guessed who the culprits were early on. Sure, it is a short novella and a fast-paced mystery, but I felt like there could have been more twists and turns to make things not so obvious in the beginning.

Overall, this is a very well written Christan mystery novella that has a great theme of salvation, as well as trusting God even when bad things happen.
